Episode Notes
This is the first appearance of Danny Strong (Doyle).

Episode Quotes
Rory: More broccoli, Grandpa?
Richard: Absolutely. Staves off the cancer.
Lorelai: Staves off my appetite.
Emily: You really should eat more green things, Lorelai.
Lorelai: I plan to eat a five-dollar bill later tonight.
Rory: Oh, have you seen the new twenties? They have a little peach color in 'em.
Lorelai: Peach, perfect. I'll eat a new twenty, I'll have my fruits and vegetables.

Lorelai: No, and I was the very picture of awkwardness, and basically, I just fled. And when I saw Luke later, we got into a fight about it, and I told him his coffee pots were stupid.
Rory: So it was very sophisticated.

Lorelai: Hi, hon. Jason, this is my daughter, Rory. Rory, Jason.
Rory: Right, Scooper.
Lorelai: Digger.
Rory: Sorry. Digger.
Jason: It's nice to meet you. And I don't really go by Digger anymore.
Lorelai: What, is it P. Digger now?

Bruce: Every second Davey's brain is hard-wiring for life. Baby talk can retard his language-acquisition rate. Is that what you want?
Lorelai: Definitely not. I want him fully tarded.

Richard: Say, are you and Rory wireless?
Lorelai: Oh, no, we're pretty wired most of the time.

Episode Goofs
When Lorelai is talking to Rory on the phone outside, a woman walks by twice, both times in the same direction.

In this episode, Emily is very against using and having the Internet. However, in "The Lorelais' First Day at Chilton" Emily orders a DSL line to be installed in Lorelai's house.

In this episode, Lorelai states that she was kicked out of camp for "liberating the horses". However, in "Richard in Star's Hollow", Lorelai says that she was kicked out of camp for "refusing to call the counselors by their nicknames".

Cultural References
Jason: It's nice to meet you. And I don't really go by Digger anymore.
Lorelai: What is it, P. Digger now?

This is a reference to the hip-hop artist Diddy, who has changed his names several times from Puff Daddy, to P. Diddy, to Diddy.

Paris: I got my East Side 860 partners on it. Now let's move.

Paris is referencing gang activity in New York and how it's refered to by regions. 860, however, is an upper-class neighborhood on Park Avenue.

Jason: Was it Camp Waziyatah?

Camp Waziyatah was the camp used in the Disney Channel series, Bug Juice.
